Course Outline

Pre-Requisites

You should have advanced system administration experience with AIX 5.3 or later. This prerequisite may be met by attending one of the following courses: Power Systems for AIX II: AIX Implementation and Administration (AN120/AX120) AIX Jumpstart for UNIX Professionals (AN140/AX140) or you must have equivalent AIX and LPAR skills. General TCP/IP knowledge is strongly recommended. This prerequisite may be met by attending AIX 5L TCP/IP I: Configuration (AU070) or TCPIP for AIX Administrators (AN210/AX210). You are also expected to have logical partition administration skills on POWER6 or POWER7 processor-based systems, which can be obtained by attending Power Systems for AIX I: LPAR Configuration and Planning (AN110/AX110).

Lessons

IBM Course Code: AN301CE

This course provides an overview of the PowerVM edition's features on POWER6 and POWER7 processor-based systems. It explains the new features and benefits of virtualization including processor virtualization, Integrated Virtual Ethernet, Virtual I/O Server, and virtual devices, such as virtual Ethernet, virtual SCSI, and virtual Fibre Channel adapters. Basic and advanced configurations of the Virtual I/O Server and its clients are discussed including various availability options.

Expand your knowledge about PowerVM features that were introduced in Power Systems for AIX I: LPAR Configuration and Planning (AN110/AX110).

What You'll Learn
  • Discuss the advantages or value of PowerVM edition's features
  • Define micro-partitioning and shared processor LPARs
  • Discuss the benefits of simultaneous multithreading
  • Discuss and configure the Integrated Virtual Ethernet (IVE)
  • Install and configure the Virtual I/O Server
  • Configure virtual network devices, such as virtual Ethernet and shared Ethernet adapters
  • Configure virtual SCSI and virtual Fibre Channel storage adapters
  • Configure virtual SCSI target devices on a virtual SCSI adapter
  • Define file-backed storage pools and file-backed virtual optical devices
  • Identify single points of failure in virtualized environments
  • Configure multiple VIO servers for high availability
  • Configure advanced virtual networking options
  • Configure the shared Ethernet adapter failover feature
  • Configure advanced virtual SCSI options
  • Configure MPIO in a VIO server's client partition
  • Manage the service events, configure call home, add, exchange FRUs, and discuss FSP failover
  • Perform PowerVM (VIOS) Maintenance
Who Needs to Attend

This advanced course is appropriate for System Administrators, Technical Support Personnel, and Business Partners responsible for implementing LPARs on IBM Power Systems with AIX servers.

Wasn’t as advanced as I thought it would be. There was an issue when the day my course was the first time they used a new platform.. from adobe to something called zoom; I had to call support line cause it stated our instructor wasn’t present. Thankfully I called cause everyone online was in the adobe virtual classroom waiting for what looked like a teacher who didn’t show up for class (IT didn’t get anything resolved until 10mins after start time). I felt like he was really getting hung up on very basic knowledge for the first half of the course (talking about how to create tabs and drag formulas as an example). I completed files a few times before he was done explaining. There was a scheduled fire drill for them (roughly 30mins)that also cut into our time, which wasn’t deducted from the hour lunch break or the two, fifteen min breaks. I also really wish he touched base more on the automating workbook functions portion which we barely did. I'm happy there were/are those study guides (learning videos) and exams to take on my own time that I hope after I've had the class are still available for me to learn from.
